Happy Decoration Day!

Formerly known as “Decoration Day,” Memorial Day originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union soldiers who died in the Civil War.  It has since blossomed into a day of remembering all of the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces.

Happy Decoration Day.  Those who have fallen for this beautiful, vivacious country will always be stars in my eyes.
